Noelle Aston Shawver
Noelle Aston Shawver, 5, of Blackfoot, danced her way into the arms of our loving Father in Heaven on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, in Pocatello.
Our little princess, Noelle, was born Dec. 20, 2008, in Pocatello to Kenneth Andrew (Drew) and Stacie Nicole Udy
Shawver. Our princess will continue to be loved and will be missed greatly.
Noelle recently graduated from Miss Connie's preschool and was looking forward to starting kindergarten this fall. She was very smart and enjoyed learning. She seldom had a frown on her face and her bubbly personality would make others smile instantly. She had a love for everyone she met. She made friends easily and was loved by all.
Noelle had a fun attitude and enjoyed serving and helping others. She was a great example to her younger sister and brother. She enjoyed coloring, singing, painting her nails and playing on the computer. She loved being outside where she could ride her bike, dig in the dirt and play in the water, but her favorite time was just to spend time with family.
She entertained everyone with her spontaneity, she would make up stories, she loved telling knock-knock jokes and she would break into a dance and sing whenever music came on. She was always on the go, whether it was skipping, running or at a full-out sprint, and was eager to move onto something new and different.
Noelle was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was excited to attend Primary and participate in the Primary programs and invited all her relatives to come watch. She loved to sing Primary songs everywhere she went. Her favorite song was "I Am a Child of God."
Noelle is survived by her parents, Drew and Stacie; sister, Sloan Oaklee Shawver (3 years); brother, Rhett Kenneth Grant Shawver (7 months), all of Blackfoot; grandparents, Blaine and Debbie Udy of American Falls, Todd and Susan Shawver of Pingree; great-grandmothers, Afton Shawver of Pingree and Donna Bush of American Falls; aunts and uncles, David (Kristen) Allen, April (Ben) Simpson, Kari (A.J.)
